Not sure why the huge font, but it might be useful to specify which B&W speakers you’re speaking of.

And you you may want to be aware that this being a Sonos support forum, and not a general stereo forum, you’re likely to get info heavily weighted towards the Sonos option, whether it is correct or not.
Also worth noting that the Amp is designed to work with your TV while the play:5s are not.
The only way to be sure of getting a good result is to try both at home. Speaker sound quality for both will be more of a preference for one than poor quality in the other, and that can be very personal, hence this statement.
If you are already sure you like the B&W speaker sound signature, that is the way to go even without a test if the test is not possible.
PS: Ideally, the Sonos Sub is needed for all play units to deliver the best. Even a 1 pair+ Sub may meet expectations comfortably, although at a loss of line in jacks that are needed for more versatility.
